. just as one video seemed to have been the game changer in this election, the 47%er, we still have three debates coming up, where if mitt romney was to do a turn around, he has a chance, starting tuesday -- starting october 3rd in denver, wednesday -- where he has, i think, some of the few chances left to try and figure out a way to turn this around. to explain if there is an explanation for what he really want wants to do that will be more inclusive than that video sent. he has a few chances left if trend is against him but i'm not ready to call it yet. >> i have to say, it does seem over the last 24, 48 hours they do some very specific thing. he's getting out there more. he's been doing a ton of interviews. after all, the criticism early on that he was never there to be interviewed. let me play a little clip from yesterday. >> throughout this campailmpaig well. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in my state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people in this country than that kind of record. >>
the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >> the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> reporter: his most expansive comments on what he called the crisis in the middle east. he invoked the memory of one fallen american. >> we must reaffirm that our future will be determined by people like chris stevens and not by his killers. today we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our united nations. >> reporter: to the world he offered a lesson in u.s. values. first, denouncing the insighting video. >> a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the muslim world. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the maj
politics, you've probably noticed that polling of the presidential election has swung quite decidedly in the president's favor over the last couple of weeks. the real clear politics polling average now has obama up 4.1 points over mitt romney in national poles. nate silver's prediction model put barack obama's odds of winning the election above 80% for the first time ever. swing state polling just this week seems to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to the
to be very difficult. all i can say at this point he's not going to win on electability factor. he won't win on the relatability factor. >> eliot: likability, foreign policy economics. >> where he has some room to grow, i think is on substance. he needs to win the substance debate. that will be shown in upcoming debates. >> eliot: after watching for two years, he has to win the substance debate. he has how many days left? >> he's gotta provide more of a detailed, consistent plan that people can ingrate. >> he tried that with the secret fund-raising video. he said no, i agree. as one of my colleagues, it is romney has been all attack and no substance for this race. i think in ohio, it's quite interesting. vice president biden as we reported recently is living in ohio now. and then after those polls came out, a romney advisor told "buzzfeed" that romney's internal polling they claim is within the margin of error so they're disputing that it's true. >> eliot: took a poll of two people to the margin of error is 50%.
mondale say that the night before the election. a lot of desperation going on on the far right, but what's happening in the race? >> laser focus on the swing states. the candidates in virginia today, one of 30 states where early voting is already under way. it's a state president obama won in 2008 by more than six points. and where a polling average from real clear politics shows him right now at this moment up about 4.5 points. yesterday both candidates holding rallies in ohio, crisscrossing the state, sometimes almost running into each other they were so close campaigning. mitt romney tried to brush back suggestions his campaign is faltering there after that "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll showing him ten points down in ohio. >> i'm very pleased with some polls, less so with other polls. but frankly at this early stage, polls go up and down. i don't expect to get 100% of the vote. i know i'm not going to get 100%. i hope to get 50 plus percent and make sure that i become the next president. >> talking about all those polls yesterday, mitt romney cited gallup and rasmussen, a coupl

calls that sent everyone into a frenzy. >>> just 42 days until elections. the battle over voter ids is intensifying in sever states. tens of thousands you may not have your votes counted. tote in pennsylvania, the state is trying to prove that it's new voter id law will not is enfranchise voters. and a justice department decision is being discussed in another state. >> can they hear us across the street? >> reporter: as the pennsylvania supreme court pree paired to hear argue lts on the new voter id law, the naacp protested what they call a thinly veiled attempt to suppress voters. >> we have seen more states, pushing more laws, pushing more voters out of the ballot box than we have seen in the past 100 years. >> reporter: it is a scene played out in states across the country. civil rights groups pushing back against voter id laws. >> the effort to change the rules of the game at the last minute is a really misguided effort. >> reporter: wednesdndy wiser s hundreds of voters may not have the right id. the elderly, college students, poor people, blacks and latinos. groups that tradit
was 2008 it's because of that extra vote that barack obama was elected president. these polls are assuming that extra vote will be there. when do you a sample and you ask people are you going to vote and who are you? you don't see it. what you see is the normal turnout for blacks, latinos and young people. vastly lower than 2008. what they're doing is weighting it up to look like 2008 that's why those polls are wrong and thank you for letting me explain this. >> bill: you are welcome, morris. that's my job here. i want you to explain so even i can understand it and i do. dick morris, everybody. he has got a new book coming out on october 8th entitled "here comes the black helicopters." u.n. global governance and the loss of freedom. plenty more ahead as the factor moves along this evening. miller has some thoughts on ahmadinejad. that alone should freeze any remote control action. later comedian silverman weighing in on the presidential election. oh boy. we hope you stay tuned to those reports.

on you, mr. hoffa. >> you don't impress me, i don't need $3 million and my brother elected president will whop your -- >> and anti-hero was born and many believed the mafia killed hoffa and buried his body under the former giants' stadium until they eventually dug it up and built a new stadium, no body and no hoffa. they removed floorboards in 2002 to find traces of his blood, no go. in 2006, they raised a michigan horse barn, no hoffa. today, in roseville, michigan, police will dig up a driveway. >> kill the bill! kill the bill! >> hoffa's son, james, is now president of the international brotherhood of teamsters without connections to organized crime. still, he can't escape his father's notoriety. last year, he urged fellow union members to defeat tea party candidates. it was the way he said it that caused a firestorm. >> you know what, everybody here has to vote. if we go back and we keep the eye on the prize, let's take these son of a [ expletive ] back and get america back to where we belong. >> hoffa refused to apologize an his union is equally tough when it comes to jimmy hoff
have shifted by about three points in each of the last couple of elections, and they tend to go against the incumbent administration. yes, there are questions about turnout. we expect to see a higher turnout among seniors, a slightly higher turnout among white voters, perhaps slightly higher among latinos, but most importantly we expect there will be fewer democrats relative to republicans in 2012 than there were in 2008. cheryl: scott, let's stay on this demographic issue because back in 2008 the turnout was actually higher for african-americans, obviously, most of them going for president obama. at the same time, normally that turnout number is about 11%. is it your sense in the numbers that you're seeing and tracking that we're going to see more of that realistic 11 percentile of african-american voters turning out this election? >> i believe the african-american turnout itself will be just about the same as it was in 2008. however, i believe the white turnout will be a little bit higher. there were a lot of seniors who were very discouraged with the choices last time around, so i be
walter mondale's people were blaming the polls back in 1984 a day before the election. the day before reagan got 49 states. blaming everything else but where the blame lies. and that is mitt romney and his horrible campaign. peggy noonan was right. you know, these idiots blast people like peggy noonan, these idiots blast people like "the wall street journal." these idiots blast people like laura ingram. why aren't you a loyal republican? well, i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire. and time's running out. if we want to save this house, we'd better do it now. i tried that a couple of weeks ago. guess what? time's running out. you know when early voting starts in ohio? less than a week. >> 26 states have already started voting. >> 26 states have already started early voting. in ohio where we're going to show some polls this morning that show just how horribly mitt romney's doing in ohio. you know what? i was saying last week there are 45 days. there aren't really 45 days left. they've got to turn this thing around or they lose. this is what jason riley wrote in "the wall
election day, some political writers are pointing out a suddenly tougher tone from governor mitt romney. he is on the attack, being more clear, more concise and more forcefully calling out the administration's policies that he is arguing have hurt america. it comes as both candidates hit the key battleground state of ohio today. the president is expected to speak in moments at a campaign event in bowling green, at bowling green state university, and governor romney is going to hold a manufacturing round table. the governor earlier today focused on the economy. >> do we really want four more years with 23 million americans struggling to find a good job? >> no! >> i mean, do we want four more years where half the kids coming out of college can't find work or college-level work? >> no! >> do we want four more years where every single year the take home pay goes down? >> no! >> do we want four more years of trillion dollar deficits? >> no! >> yeah, i don't believe we can afford four more years like the last four years. the people of ohio are going to say loud and clear on november 6th we can't
a muslim brotherhood member elected to the presidency of egypt, 20,000 pele have been killed in syria. these e not bumps in the road eseanlis, these are developments we don't want to see. this is time for a president who will shape events in the middle east not just be at mercy to the events in the middle east. >> mike, we talk about how mitt romney's out of touch all the time. i would say a president saying that some of the problems inhe midd easre pshe road" is extraordinarily out of touch when you have a u.s. ambassador scraped off the streets of benghazi, 20,000 killed in syria. you've got israel, our closest ally in the middle east inopen, bacallerbafaet their leader and our leader. you can go around the entire region. it's mass chaos. troops getting gned down by supposed allies every day in afghanistan. these aren't bumps in the road. this is an absolut mess. ve feel of tehran 1979. i'm not saying it's going to go that way, but you remember 1979 and the chaos that ensued. this isn't it. but this isn't a bump in the road. >> this is not1979. >> so it's not -- paury irf all, how d
? we are six weeks out from this election. >> well, look now, six weeks is a relatively short time in politics, but -- in real life, but in politics it's eras. six weeks ago the race looked different, and we have had a million different tempests in teapots that both campaigns have flapped their wings tourously about. but in reality this is a long time in politics with three debates. we've heard the tough new tone from romney before. we certainly heard it when they rolled out paul ryan, the number one deficit hawk in the house. we've heard this before. the question for romney is, will he stick? will he stay there, and will he continue to prosecute president obama's record and policies in a more robust way? because in the past what he's done is tried the tough new tone and not stayed there. megyn: well, he's taking it a step farther, right? it's not just about his policies, but it's about his ideology and an argument that he sees the world differently than mitt romney sees the world and, you know, there was that tape earlier, the 1998 tape of barack obama and talking about redistribu
significant right now? >> he has more than 40 days to go before this election, but keep in mind that the presidential debates, a series of presidential debates in that vice presidential debate gets going next week. so he doesn't have a whole lot of time on the ground to persuade swing state voters like here in ohio that he needs them on his side, and you can see he has this economic message behind me right now in big letters on that sign. it says we need a real recovery. he has been fine-tuning his economic message all morning long. trying to reconnect with voters in this stais state. he said at a hearing in the western of the state that his heartaches for people who are struggling in this economy. take a listen to a little bit of what he had to say earlier this morning. >> there is so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. he know what it takes to get an economy going again and creating jobs. i know a lot of folks that have jobs wonder how they can make ends meet until the end of the month and put food on the table until the -- >> and it's not just
, but there are no certainties here, a lot can happen between now and election day. stuart: always a pleasure, mark. thank you. it's almost 9:49 about a minute to go before 9:50, but we always give you the gold price at this time so here it is. 1,774.80, we're up 10 bucks today. interesting. while world leaders are gathering in new york, president obama is not meeting with any of them. instead sitting down with barbara walters and whoopi goldberg and last week on david letterman. do these appearances make him look presidential or just simply help with young voters? good question. we will ask rn krchc chairman r priebus if it's working for the president and if romney should be doing the same copying with young people. what should he do: teachers strike, are unions standing in the the way of progress of our public schools? we'll ask the president of a charter school about that. and a major debacle at the end of the monday night football game, the replacement officials make the wrong call. after this, is it time for them to tell them to hit the road? gretchen and charles are next. >> i've got one issue with dem
with the fact that we are exactly six weeks away from a very contentious election and he doesn't want to go down that road. you can debate whether that's the right or wrong thing for the president to do but it is the political thing that is being done currently. >> quickly, we want to talk about ohio, because "the washington post" on your battlegrounds you've moved ohio into the obama camp leaning obama because of the lead he's opened up there and that's obviously critical, the president going there tomorrow. we've seen. mitt romney and ryan were there just yesterdayp. >> >> just going to says the romney/ryan bus tour. we've spent time thinking about this whether to do it or not. ohio has been a central battleground and swing state in the last three or four elections. a poll among likely voters that has mitt romney down eight points. the trend in polling in that state, all the polls, obama is way, internal polling has obama ahead in the mid to high single digits. today ohio does not look the same as florida, for example. florida looks like a true toss up. colorado looks like a toss up. nevada. o
would win the next election. he's funny about that. he's allowed to run as president of ireland because of his irish heritage. he's also, because arkansas is part of some former french colony or part of the french empire, he is allowed to also go to france where he would have to stay for six months and learn the language, to run as president of france. >> that's not a bad gig. >> you could have president clinton of paris. it could be most entertaining. >> it could be very entertaining. i hear they have fabulous wine there, but i digress. i want to play some of your interview. seriously here, you're talking to bill clinton, talking about romney's appearance at the clinton global initiative. here you go. >> mitt romney today came out with this line, went down very well with the audience, as you expected. there is one thing we learn, a few words from bill clinton can do someone a lot of good. what words would you have for mitt romney given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates are very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think
may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. ♪ >> announcer: radio meets television, the "bill press show." now on current tv. >> bill: so bill clinton even weighed in yesterday in the middle of the clinton global initiative on the nfl refs controversy, so it was -- bill clinton, barack obama, paul ryan, mitt romney at some point % said something about it. finally something that all americans can agree on yeah except the stupid nfl owners. jim is calling from highland park, illinois. >> caller: hey, bill. i'm a great fan of yours. i say vote for [ inaudible ] against paul ryan, but mitt romney missed his opportunity to ask one of his football owner friends to fix the problem. >> bill: good point. he is the guy that identifies with the nfl owners not the players, right? >> caller: exactly. >> bill: good point. if anybody can get those guys together it is mitt romney. they are his buds. and dan snyder i mentioned him. he is giving a fund raiser for mitt romney at his house. there you go. joanne in phoenix, arizona. hi, joanne. >> caller: hi, bill. how
. of course you heard it no republican has ever won the election while losing ohio. jan crawford is there covering the romney campaign. >> hello, ohio. >> buckeye state is a wonderful place. >> o.h. o.h. >> if we win ohio we win the election. >> reporter: ohio is known as the bellwether and that's why it's seen a lot of president obama and mitt romney with today's visit both have been here 14 times each in the campaign this year. for romney the tough battle is getting tougher. the new cbs news poll shows president obama widening his lead here jumping four points since last month. there are other troubling signs for romney, voters in ohio and two other swing states we surveyed now give the president the edge on the economy, the corner stone of romney's campaign and those voters also say they believe romney's policies will favor the rich. >> there's been a consistent line of afact from the president. >> i do not believe that another round of tax cuts for millionaires are going to bring good jobs back to ohio. >> reporter: it features promptly in mr. obama's television ads which has
have for mitt romney given the state of the election campaign right now? >> well, i think, you know, the debates e very important for him. >> crucial? >> i think so. and i think if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties bee no know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children and the reason they don't pay federal income taxes is the median income is as low as it was in 1995 now, and until the current eleion season, republicans and democrats crpported both the child tax it andhe earned income tax credit. this is a rejection of basicmor bipartisan policy to support workingfamilies. it is not a bunch freeloaders. >> there he goes. piers mo bringing up the 47% from the secretly videotaped moment in that fund-raiser back in, what, may. but no big sis hs going straight for that 47% line. noand quite interesting because bill clinton on my show tually a few months ago had, of course, supported mt romney over his record of bain capital and refused to join inhe obama super pac bashing of romney over that. >> that made news. >> it mad
